After using the bezier method I am running into a problem moving the same object, in IE8 only. (other browsers work fine.)

In IE8 the object doesn't seem to disconnect properly from the bezier path and does it's own thing when I try to move it some new, straight direction.  I tried to work around this by using the tl.set method on the object after the bezier motion, but that did not change anything. Is there a work around this?

Hi deanpien  :)


i tested that and works fine with ie8 , but there's 2 points in your code :


- your selector should be like this : 

"#logo" //select by id
".logo" // select by class
$("#logo") //select by id with jquery 

- the correct way to define ease :


pls check out the GSAP Docs. :

Thanks, I made the corrections but it still doesn't work in IE8. The motion of the object sweeps in a different direction. The error console message in IE 8 states:

Object doesn't support property or method 'addEventListener'

Any work arounds?

Hello deanpien, and welcome to the GreenSock Forum!


Are you seeing this in real PC IE8 standalone or are you seeing this in IE10 or IE11 Document Mode which fakes the render of IE8?


If you are seeing this in IE10 or IE11 Document Mode than it is not an accurate rendering of real standalone IE8.


Also keep in mind that codepen will not display your code correctly in Edit Mode in IE8. You have to use Full Mode in codepen for your code demo to work and render properly in IE8.


Thank you for any additional information :)
